[Movies] Dwayne Johnson Says He Used To Play With G.I. Joe Figures As A Kid
Posted by Joseph Lee on 08.01.2013



In an interview with Metro, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson revealed he used to play with his G.I. Joe figures every day when he was growing up. Here are highlights:

On how important G.I. Joe is to him: "I played with my GI Joe and Star Wars action figures every day. They mingled. I was always creating scenarios with them, so, looking back, they were very important. The cool, emotional connectivity to all that, with me coming full circle by starring in this movie, is a very cool thing."

On if real NAVY Seals were on the set of Retaliation: "Yes. They are the real superheroes. The men and women of our military are always inspiring to me. I have family who have served and family who are Navy SEALs, so I have an emotional connection. Even though GI Joe is heightened reality, we wanted to pay homage and make the movie real boots-to-the-ground gritty, with that spirit."

On acting with Bruce Willis: "That guy is something else. I've been buddies with Bruce for a while. He's iconic. He's been one of the world's biggest movie stars for a long time, so us together, guns in our hands, saving the world as GI Joes, was cool."
